Trailer Talk: Fassbender Edition

Seeing Double If there’s one thing I like more than sparkly vampires and fanfiction, it’s hunky actors with adorable accents, but I guess you already knew that about me.

BLOGAVERSARY 3.0!!!

I Know You’re Fictional, but . . .

Have you met my fictional boyfriend? I have a confession to make. I’m in love with a fictional character. Actually, I’m in love with several fictional characters. I know the logistics of these relationships don’t exactly add up. They are fictitious fantasies that more or less reside in my mind. However, that doesn’t mean they…
